What I don’t like about Gnome 3 desktop is how it hides everything from you under multiple layers of mouse clicks in order to try to simplify. But what it does is over categorize everything! This would work just fine on a tablet pc, but I’m on a desktop or full laptop and I consider myself a power user!
Animated aquariums are nice and all, but how about an animated ascii art aquarium? Bonus points for embedding your aquarium into your desktop!
f you’re mounting a file system via custom udev rules, hal does not populate /media/.hal-mtab. When a desktop user attempts to unmount the file system, hal complains that it doesn’t know anything about that file system and gives you a friendly message about console users that may have mounted it.
Is the recent acquisition of Bumptop going to make its way to Android in some shape or form anytime soon? This week is your last chance to pick up a copy of BumpTop, the 3-D Desktop for Mac and Windows.
The update experience in Fedora, including the recently released Fedora 12, is flawed. There are just too many packages flooding the repositories for the current release model to function efficiently and securely. There seems to be no requirement for updates to only fix bugs and add hardware support while avoiding implementing brand new features. But is the drive here just to become more like Windows?
Can anyone think of any other audio related packages I can get rid of? I don’t need audio, cd burning, flashy 3d graphics, printing, image or video playback/record capabilities on this machine at all.
Oooo an irc client… i hate the state that most of the sugar software is in. I just feel like it’s all forced, I mean what’s the big deal anyway? Is it just my XO that’s slow and boring? I’m about to put Linux on the XO, and sugar on a regular Intel desktop. How backwards is that?! Maybe sugar will be usable on a real machine.
